Theodore Bikel in Concert with Accordionist Merima Kljuco- SOLD OUT

Dates: 
Saturday, November 3, 2012 - 7:30pm

(in conjunction with the conference Captives of the Dawn: Remembering Soviet Yiddish Culture

Theodore Bikel is an Academy Award and Tony Award-nominated actor and musician. A recognized interpreter of Yiddish, Russian and Hebrew folk songs, Bikel was an activist in the Soviet Jewry Freedom Movement.

Merima Ključo imbues a dizzying variety of music with playing that moves with its depth of understanding and experience.  Whether performing in recital, with ensembles such as Serendipity 4 (with Theodore Bikel), MusikFabrik, and the Asko/Schönberg Ensemble, or as guest soloist with orchestras such as the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, the soulful traditions of her instrument are not only given a unique voice, but they are given new life and meaning.

Co-presented by The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life, the Institute of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies, Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures, Department of German, (what's Arts and Humanities?) and the Judaica Collection of the Doe-Moffitt Library at UC Berkeley.
